The general concept behind the app is Magic Estimation method (also sometimes referred to as Silent Grouping, Affinity Estimation, Relative Estimation, Swimlanes Sizing). The method's main idea is in sorting user stories through a board based on their relative weight, unlike Planning Poker based solution with a core of voting for estimation values. Stories of similar sizes might be placed on similar lanes.

The app supports fixed lanes mode, where the lanes are defined upfront, or fully relative mode, where the lanes are labeled only at the end.

Magic Estimations app is really simple and self-explanatory. It is super fast compared to alternatives since it's much easier to make a sizing decision for a user story while comparing it to other cards
